Summer Internship Program in Economics

In cooperation with sponsoring organizations, the Economics Department offers a summer internship program in economics. Students may request to receive one-half or one full CMC course credit (CR/NC) for the internship, depending on the type of job and number of hours worked. Students must obtain approval in advance to register for an economics internship. To be eligible for academic credit, students must complete a paper on an agreed upon topic together with other readings or projects assigned by the faculty reader. Students must also provide an evaluation from their internship supervisor.

To be eligible for a full course credit, a student must be an economics major with a GPA in the major and a cumulative GPA of at least "B" (9.00). The student must have successfully completed at least 24 courses, including Economics 50. Principles of Economic Analysis; Economics 86. Accounting for Decision Making; Economics 101. Intermediate Microeconomics; and Economics 102. Intermediate Macroeconomics, or the equivalent. As part of the summer internship in economics, students must work full-time (40 hours per week) for at least ten weeks. Students may earn one-half course credit for a summer economics internship that does not meet the criteria listed above, provided they work at least two months and meet the other requirements for one-half credit internships.
